offering reopening support services to businesses in the washington dc area

COVID-19 is a formidable enemy: we know. The clinicians and public health experts in the GW Department of Emergency Medicine (DEM) have decades of experience mitigating public health emergencies and responding to environmental and man-made disasters globally. As the largest Emergency Medicine and Urgent Care group in Washington, DC, we have gained critical experience on how to fight COVID-19. Now we are all ready for the next step: to open up our economy and re-establish our vibrant way of life. Our health experts at the GW Department of Emergency Medicine stand ready to assist you on developing and carrying out your re-opening plans.

We are grateful for the trust, support and generosity exhibited by our whole community over the last few months. To have a sustained and successful recovery, we must be meticulous in our planning and vigilant in the performance of our duties. A reopening strategy needs to be well-researched, methodical and based on best practices and scientific knowledge.

Over decades, we have consulted with local, regional and international businesses on their health-related planning, risk mitigation and recovery services. Our proven track record of success comes from a winning formula based on scientific expertise and business acumen. Our experts work on the front lines and understand the concerns of customers and employers as they navigate re-opening our places of work, leisure, worship and learning. We can provide science based and best practice guidance to support you and address issues related to PPE and cleaning policies, testing, quarantine, contact tracing, return to work, and telehealth.

It is time to start planning the recovery of your enterprise. We are committed to helping you do so in a logical, safe, affordable and sustainable way. You relied on the clinicians and public health experts of the GW Department of Emergency Medicine (DEM) to care for you and your loved ones during the first part of this crisis: we pledge to support you through the recovery phase as well.
